CD is write protected

Recommended Posts

Recently upgraded our server where Retrospect is resident and just physically moved the previous hard-drive over (so no need to restore). When I go to recycle the CDs used for backup (on old machine), the system tells me that the CDs are write protected. They can be read in a different machine, and I have even erased all the data on one and tried it on the server - still the same message.


What does this mean and how can I "unprotect" them?

Thanks in advance,
